    Neighbor buys chickens for property that he doesn't live on. Chickens subsequently come to our property for food and such. All the hens were killed, but this roo has stuck around and has been breeding with one of our hens (Rotisserie).

    Rotisserie has been penned with her new hatchlings so this roo has gotten desperate and now thinks he is part of the Muscovy flock and is even grabbing the female ducks.

    Very pretty bird. I am going to say he is more than likely an easter egger but may have a touch of game in him.

    Quote:Off topic, but, WHY would someone put chickens out on vacant property like that? Did he provide those birds with protection?... food?... water?... anything, except land to free range on? [​IMG]

    What a gorgeous roo! His chest looks live silver laced wyandotte!

    Hey, Volume - what sort of camera did you use? That first picture is just really, really neat, how the area behind AND in front is blurry...how'd you do that? HAS to be an SLR-type, right?

    Well, he sure poses well! Nice photos!
    Gorgeous bird, too. But I think all the roos are beautiful.
    With those long legs he could have some OEG in him. But quite likely Mutt.

    Good luck with him 'joining' your duck flock. I recently had to rehome a roo for tearing up my duck hens by trying to breed them constantly (and I have 20 female ducks).
